Prince William and Kate’s official portrait unveiled

A new painting of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was revealed to the public on Thursday.

The painting – the first official portrait of Prince William and his wife, Catherine, together – is on display at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, UK.

Painted by award-winning British artist Jamie Coreth, the piece was commissioned in 2021 by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Fund as a gift to the people of the county of Cambridgeshire. The painting is an oil on linen, measuring 210 cm by 110 cm.

On Instagram, Coreth called the commission « a surreal and extraordinary experience » and « the most extraordinary privilege of my life. »

The Duke and Duchess shared a photo of the image on social media, saying they were « delighted » with the work.

« The Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Fund works with the museum to ensure that portraiture is used as a means of encouraging children and young people of all backgrounds across the county to be interested in art in all its forms » , according to an Instagram post from the royal family.
